          Lovely hotel staff are really friendly and the food really good, Easy to get to from the red jet ferry if you are travelling on foot but just across the River if travelling by car. I would definitely stay there again.

          Bed was great and room was quirky. Bathroom was about average, but the shower not great. The food we had was fantastic and all really reasonable too, which shocked us a bit coming from Bucks, where everything is double that of everywhere else on earth....More
